I want to start our today’s video with a series of questions.
How many times things have slipped through your mind while remembering something important? How often have you failed to recall even one useful thing from a book or article you read lately? How much time have you wasted looking for a file you were sure you have saved earlier?
If your answer is, “all of these happened today!” then you’re not alone. Nearly 95 percent of people suffer from the same kind of information loss. Now, it’s high time to realize that we can’t “use our single mind” to store everything we need to know and That’s where a Second Brain comes in. Building a Second Brain is a method to cultivate information in your own unique way. So when an opportunity comes in, You’ll have access to the information you need to make the most effective action.
You might wonder What’s wrong with having just one brain? Nothing, really. So yeah, with one brain you will do just fine, but if you’re really looking to expand your knowledge, increase your productivity, and lead a more fulfilling life with more ease and less stress, then things are better in pairs.
Well, the best thing you can do is enroll in a professional Second Brain Building course. But, these professional courses cost a substantial amount of money. Thankfully, for those, who don’t have that amount of money to drop, productivity experts have given some jumping-off points for building a second brain on our own.
In this video, we will discuss three steps to building a second brain. So, without further ado, Let’s take a close look at each of them.
Number one – Build a Second Brain
If you want to remember something permanently, you have to be repeatedly exposed to it. Developing a second doesn’t literally mean you will grow another brain in your head, it just means interacting with any information constantly and making it unforgettable.
One of the key points of building a second brain is accessibility. And to do this, you have to be able to access your mind whenever required. Otherwise, you’ll end up forgetting one thing or another.
Remember, you don’t have to capture every piece of information you interact with. A part of building a healthy and valuable second brain is determining whether something is worth remembering or not.
Number two – Build a Second Brain
Here’s where things get a bit interesting. When you start interacting with your information more, you’ll begin to witness a growing number of connections between different data points and begin to visualize these connections. Summarizing and filtering large information is the key here because once you can see the main points of an article or book, it becomes a lot easier to compare, store and contrast the information.
Number three – Build a Second Brain
In this step, you will need to test and apply all the steps you’ve taken so far to organize and categorize information. Building a second brain is all about optimizing your capacity to create and organize a better, more productive place of insight and learning.
Use this newly furnished second brain to make and do great things, and put those things out in the world for others to watch and learn. Don’t wait for the right moment to share your creations; if you do that, you’ll never feel ready to start. The best thing you can do is to take action immediately and to improve as you go along.
